Hundreds across the Midlands vote early in the 2024 Republican Primary Election

On Monday, hundreds of Midlands residents exercised their right to vote early for the 2024 Republican Primary Election. Approximately 600 voters cast their early ballots in Lexington County, while over 200 did so in Richland County.

Early Voting | A Fast and Convenient Process

According to Lenice Shoemaker, Director of Lexington County’s Registration & Elections, early voting proves to be a faster process for those who can walk in. There are two designated locations in Lexington County: the location at 605 West Main Street and Midlands Tech’s Harbison Campus, where voters can cast their early votes in room 102 of the Continuing Education Centre building.

Shoemaker further emphasized the available curbside service, extending convenience for voters with particular needs: “We do have the curbside service available for those who do need it.”

Early Voting | Richland County’s Response

Richland County has also opened two early polling sites, located directly across from one another on Hampton Street. Despite the rain on Monday, over 200 ballots were cast by 5 pm. “It was raining but we still had a good flow,” noted Travis Alexander, Director of Richland County’s Registration & Elections. He added that the first voting residents were already in line by 8:30 am.

Voices of Early Georgian Voters

Lexington County residents Marshall and Mary Ann Armstrong expressed their surprise at the speed and efficiency of the early voting process. “It took us five minutes to take care of the whole process,” Marshall revealed. Mary Ann added, “It was very smooth; everybody was very nice, and it went quick.”

Early Voting | Important Dates and Times

Early voting sites remain open Monday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. with the last day for voting slated for Thursday, February 22. However, the election office will be closed on the following Monday to observe the President’s Day holiday.
